No one on the Miami Dolphins roster is more exciting than Tua Tagovailoa.
If the lead-up to the 2020 NFL Draft wasn’t bad, the lead up to Tagovailoa taking his first reps as a member of the Miami Dolphins will be horrific, especially given the fact that fans can’t watch his first practices.
There is speculation that Tua will not take part in mini-camp and there are plenty of fans who believe he should be comfortably watching from the sidelines. That being said, he will throw passes at camp and whether they are great, good, average, or really bad, you will have to rely on the media and the Miami Dolphins themselves to tell you.
Tagovailoa is the future of this franchise but he is also the quarterback that Brian Flores and Chris Grier have hitched their careers too. If Tagovailoa turns out to be just another Ryan Tannehill, this regime will not survive long enough to draft his replacement.
Luckily, Tagovailoa has a lot more athletically to offer and far more college experience than Tannehill had. A Tannehill comparison isn’t really even a floor comparison. Tagovailoa at worst should be comparable to what the Seahawks have in Russel Wilson and if that is the worst he becomes, the Dolphins will still be in good shape.
Now, it is just a waiting game to hear when he takes his first steps onto the field, in pads and throws his first passes as an NFL quarterback, and when he does, we will finally get real images in his uniform.
